Rep. Adam Kinzinger isn’t exactly the most popular GOP congressman right now, at least among Republicans.
This isn’t likely to boost his credibility on the Right:

It’s definitely possible to make a compelling case that what happened on January 6 was horrible (because, well, it was). But when your critics are accusing you of political theatrics, it’s generally best not to engage in what appear to be political theatrics.
